The bits that became The Purification Ritual were originally supposed to be the main instrumentation of What the Thunder Said, but they were recorded in reaction to my own demo vocal recording, which had a very different feel than the narration eventually delivered by Ben (my narrator for that section).

I couldn't, for the life of me, get it to fit at all, but I thought it would be a damn shame to throw out such beautiful string work, so Mr. Beauregard suggested I make them their own separate track--another interlude, or an epilogue, like I did with Death by Waterphone. Turns out, it all worked, and the other parts I recorded for this track worked on their own, to better suit the ambience of the vocal delivery.
